The man in charge


CALIFORNIA ZEPHYR CONDUCTOR, GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO, JANUARY 12, 2009

Just as the train started its slow roll out of Glenwood Springs, its conductor spotted me taking his portrait. Just after I snapped it, a broad smile appeared on his face and he gave a small wave. Nonetheless, he looks properly commanding and conductor-like in this shot.

This man is a relative of mine. I won't say his name here in order to keep him anonymous. Great picture. Can we get copies?
